We are thrilled you’ve enrolled with us, and are looking forward to welcoming you to campus next week. To confirm, your first day at Newman will be Wednesday 2nd September 2020.
You will be following our all-new blended learning timetable, which will see you attend College two days per week, physically attending lessons and the remainder of the week will be spent attending your lessons virtually from home, using our tried and tested system via Microsoft Teams.
Your individual timetable will be available to view online via CEDAR from Tuesday 1st September and you will start on Wednesday 2nd September, following your Monday lessons (for the first week only). You will then be in College again on Thursday 3rd September and then Friday 4th September will be an online learning day, where you will be able to view our Back to Learning Presentation and ‘Introduction to Teams.’
Health & Safety
We want to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to ensure that your start to College is safe and successful, so as well as the timetable, we have put some measures in place to protect all of the College community. Just some of these measures include
one-way systems through College, social distancing in Social areas and hand sanitising stations throughout. See more details below, and our tutors will go through this in more detail on your first day.
Getting to College
Again, we want to ensure that you can do so as safely as possible. We know that many of our students rely on public transport to get you to us, so our new later and staggered start/end times will ease the congestion on the buses both in the morning and going home. Also, as you will only be attending College for two days per week it will be more economical to simply purchase a daily pass on the bus for your travel than it would be to buy a termly pass. We will continue to review this as time passes and if anything changes. For more information click below:
